Audrey Hepburn Treasures

My fantastic sister got me this book for my birthday earlier this month and I’ve been a total slacker with posting it mostly because I just can’t find an image that will do this book justice. Audrey Hepburn Treasures is a gorgeously designed scrapbook featuring pages of glassine envelopes holding reproductions of Audrey Hepburn’s letters, premiere ticket stubs, pages from her scripts with her notes, birth announcements and over 200 photographs. The book goes through her life from a child growing up in Europe to her first film role in Roman Holiday. throughout her film career and ending with her charitable work for UNICEF. If you are a fan as I am, you must own this book. I can’t stop looking at it or pulling little mementos from the sleeves. You just have to see this.

    That sounds really amazing. That should be a prototype for all of the icons.
